Live until I die

“Deep down under the sea”,

Told me an Eel blenny

“There are colors so many”

“From high above the cloud”,

Told me a bird so loud

“You are loved”

“Right here on this earth”,

Asked me a dove from Perth

“For whom have you taken birth?”

The sky told me, “Your heart is broad”

The sea said, “You are so profound”

Air reminded that I was alive

The soil cautioned, “You will die”

The wind added, “Your soul will fly”

And that is why,

I want to live until I die

I want to spread smiles

I want to heal wounds

And I want to win ‘me’

Before I conquer ‘thee’

(Uttam’s pen)
